Japanese Propaedeutics C - CBS (E24)

Course content

The focus of teaching is translation and applied language use. The course enables the student to communicate in elementary to lower intermediate Japanese about general topics related to culture and society.

The course will provide a general introduction to appropriate formality levels governing social interaction. We expand the range of vocabulary, grammar patterns, and kanji according to syllabus.

Teaching is based on text- and workbooks, and students will develop their skills in speaking, reading, writing in Japanese along with grammatical analysis and translation from Japanese to English.

Activities include text reading, translation, reading aloud, written and oral translation exercises, oral interaction, teaching of Japanese characters, exercises in grammar and sentence analysis.
